A curated guide to all things cool in The Cronx


Croydon and Cool? Say wuut?!

Yep, it's true, this big slab of concrete is now one of London's hottest (and therefore coolest) new neighbourhoods.

Welcome to East Croydon Cool. We're here to show you why Croydon and Cool belong together. Whether you've lived here your whole life or are brand spanking new, we want to help you make the most of Croydon's coolest bars, cafes, pubs, restaurants, galleries, nightclubs, shops and events. Whilst we focus on East Croydon, we also highlight great spots across the rest of the borough.

So what constitutes cool? According to Urban Dictionary it's "the best way to say something is neat-o, awesome or swell. The phrase is very relaxed, never goes out of style and people will never laugh at you for using it".

For us, cool is best demonstrated by those who are obsessed with their craft. Whether it's mixing a drink, cooking a meal, painting a picture, writing a song, designing a dress, giving a manicure, acting a part, coding a website, playing an instrument...the more into it someone is, the better the result. So this website is dedicated to those individuals and businesses who have embraced their skills and interests to create something totally cool.
